Yazoo County Baptist Association

Delta Baptist Church, 597 Honeycutt Rd., Yazoo City, MS 39194, Pastor: Richard Jennings, 662-571-3024, richnpeg@cableone.net

Welcome to Our Church

The members of Delta Baptist Church met at a home for a while before establishing themselves as a church. They also met at a building on Old 16 which they rented for a while. In September of 1965, with about 12 charter members, Delta Baptist Church was established. At the time it was established they were in the Landmark Baptist work.

In 1967, they started work on a church building. Then in the early 1980's they built the Parsonage/Fellowship Hall. Both of these buildings were built by the members and both buildings were built without having to borrow money. Around the year, 2000, they moved to the Southern Baptist work and have been a Southern Baptist Church since that time.

We thank God for all of the 55 years that we have been in Yazoo City, MS. The people at Delta are all about sharing God's love with the people of Yazoo County and all the people throughout the whole world.
